We have been here numerous times, but haven't stopped in since last summer. Both my husband and I ordered the Shrimp Fra Diavolo as it is our favorite dish there. It was very disappointing. There wasn't even a hint of heat. There were 4 shrimp...More

Gluten free penne with marinara was undercooked and flavorless. Sent it back to have it cooked longer and it was still undercooked. Salads very basic, everything is overpriced. Blinds visibility dirty, won't be returning.

Tonight was the most disappointing performance I have ever seen at The Brown Bottle. I ordered two roast beef sandwiches, chips and salads to go. I waited over 35 minutes for my order and paid $40 for my meal. When I got home, I found...More
